My dream phone
Thanks LG for this phone
Beautifull designed ever its time to rock
remove that face on the back.. it looks soo bad.. same as on g6 :/.. the front camera move it in a corner and then you will have a very good looking phone.. oh and thos secondary display icons move them down .. so we can use it with one hand easily

It is one of the defining features of the V series. If they yank it, it will just force us loyal customers into the hands of the competition. Both Samsung and Motorola make decent phones with removable batteries. They just are not as nice as my two year old V10 - despite being much newer.
LG has a potential winning formula if they stick to it. The G series appeals to the average consumer with a beautiful metal and glass unibody design sacrificing a removable battery. The V series appeals to the power user combining a sleek build but slightly less premium look while maintaining important features like a removable battery.

This is the reason why I got my V20 exactly four weeks ago on May 2nd. I knew glass rear would be mean the end for removable battery. V30 would go waterproof like the V34 and G6. It is also why I picked up the Pixel since headphone jack might be removed with its 2017 successor.
LG G5 and V20 are like the Samsung Galaxy S5 and Note 4. The last flagships from either companies before this sealed battery and glass rear nonsense. RIP to removable battery and phone longevity. Hello to planned obsolescence.
essential phone mixed with g6 back... ok good job Photoshop ............
This definitely does look cool , I don't know why some people don't like it, glass back is something I don't like but this device will specially do the job for LG , specially with that slidable screen if it's present(in the final model)
Horrible news. I hope it's fake. Because this design means non-removable battery, which is deal breaker.
Looks very nice but secondary display looks cheap and I thought there was a sliding keyboard.
This looks weird but beautiful that new color looks weird and beautiful front camera in middle will interfere with secondary screen I just hope it is metal and not glass or ceramic
Could gsmarena do the complete drop test review? Smash or crash or fling the phone to test the bezelless durable than with bezel, make everyone believe the bezelless is the durable king please....
Unfortunately 2017 no such drop test review to praising bezelless smartphone.
Comment Section, 30 May 2017Take all of this leaks with a pinch of salt v.(^_^).vWith a slice of lemon and a shot of tequila :P :D
Looks nice, that split secondary display though...is just bad...that selfie cam will be seeing smudges galore if it is actually like that. (for those of us that use the secondary displays)
A bit saddened if the removable battery goes...gotta love planned obsolescence...(its not for IP rating, many phones have done that with removable batteries...its called rubber seals)
Polius, 30 May 2017I just realized it is exactly like Rubin's Essential phone. Lol. Why the front camera need to ... moreA camera in the middle is better. On DSLR's the lens is always in the middle of the Camera body. To one side or the other on a phone skews the image. Putting the camera in the middle of the phone, you'll get more of a straight on shot. It will also prevent the obligatory finger from being in the lens view. I think this is a good thing to move the front facing camera into the middle on top of the phone.
I might like this design even better than the G6... and the G6 is a beauty.
